New race for Berkshire/Oxfordshire runners
Ok so I am bottling out of this one. I just don't think I can run 10k right now and also doubt I will manage to get there on time.
Do I just send the chip back?
Hi susiebe. Not injured - just not on top form. I did a 5k (sam run) a couple of weeks ago and REALLY struggled badly. So the thought of trying to run a 10k is terrifying. I keep talking myself in and out of it but would so hate to not finish.
Enjoy your race tonight.
I did, Mr K, thank you! That was a nice enough evening out, but no kit tent and five portaloos for a field of 500-odd plus spectators and hangers-on. But otherwise a pretty decent first go. Course was scenic, traffic-free and pretty flat, and pb potential was held back only by some uneven footing along by the river. I did a decent time by my standards lately - 48 mins exact by my watch.
I cycled over from Caversham. Jeez, the traffic on the Oxford Road and then the A329 up Purley Rise and through Pangbourne takes no prisoners. On the return journey I took the train back from Pangbourne, too dangerous to cycle that road at dusk.
Cheers acdcgirl, this thread is from last year though
Was looking forward to doing this again this year, However a) its on a world cup semi final day and b) my calf went pop yesterday and I cant even walk!
Oh yeah the race does indeed go through a bit of the park - Very enjoyable race it was too. Would recommend
Must have entered this, just got an email saying I'll be getting my race pack soon.
Surely this is a sign I'm running too much! Can't remeber when I'm running!
